Career

Grown up in Argentina, in 2004 Alejandro Domínguez left River Plate for Russian side Rubin Kazan.

During 2006 pre-season Rubin tried to sell him, but they weren't satisfied with the amount offered for him and decided to keep him.[1] Domínguez was signed by FC Zenit Saint Petersburg for €7 million before the start of 2007 Russian season, breaking the record transfer fee inside the Russian Premier League, however the record is now exceeded as Danny moved from FC Dynamo Moscow to Zenit Saint Petersburg for a fee well above 30 million euros.[2] One of his most notable performances was in the 4-0 UEFA Cup victory over Bayern Munich which sent Zenit to the final of the competition for the first time in the history of the club. Dominguez played exceptionally well and provided 2 assists.

On 13 March 2009, Rubin Kazan signed 'Chori' back from Zenit, where he had some problems with the coach Dick Advocaat.

In the 2009-10 UEFA Champions League, Domínguez played well for Rubin, providing the team with goals against Internazionale Milano and FC Dynamo Kiev. He also made an assist to Gökdeniz Karadeniz who scored a stunning match-winning goal against FC Barcelona during the group stage. Rubin Kazan failed to advance to the first knockout round due to a 2-0 loss against Internazionale.

He was named the best footballer in Russia of 2009 by the Russian Football Union, Sport Express newspaper and Futbol magazine.

On December 11th, 2009, it was announced that Dominguez would join Valencia and he signed on December 14th 2009, he was given a three and a half years long contract[3]
